AHU design – UK designed and manufactured
Our range of experienced, air handling unit engineers will work in partnership with you to ensure that we design a unit to meet and exceed your exact specification. Each AHU arrangement and component selection is individually designed to your specific requirement ensuring the air handling unit produced performs with peak performance and optimised efficiency.
Our AHU design process
Upon submission of your air handling unit requirements, either to our experienced technical sales engineers (who cover the length and breadth of the UK) or direct in to head office, initial design, at tender stage, is carried out by our experienced team of estimators and application engineers.
At this point, your project will be discussed in full and proposals will be based upon required flow rates (0.2 m³/s to +50m³/s), volumes, application, unit specification and limiting factors of the project (i.e. site access, unit size, unit configuration – side-by-side / stacked).
Once your order is placed, the air handling unit project is passed to our contracts department, where initial designs are adjusted, calibrated and finalised by our highly experienced engineers.
AHU unit arrangement CAD drawings are then put into production and can be supported by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) – this service is optional and chargeable. Following this process, technical and performance documentation plus drawings are submitted to you for finalised sign-off. Once approved, drawings are issued to production and units are manufactured, 100% in the UK.
At every stage of the tender, throughout design and manufacture, we will strive to work with you to ensure we adhere to your specification. Indoor air quality is paramount to every AHU unit that we manufacture. Within our units we strive to provide crevice free internal surfaces to assist in maintenance.
BIM models are also available on request
As of 1st April 2022 we will be operating under the Airedale name. All AHUs will still be manufactured in Consett, however our websites will be merging in the coming months.
